Back in Cambridge

Israel Lab was a great IAP experience from a few perspectives.

Firstly, I had a chance to see what it is like to work in a startup, which was one of my primary motivations to take this course.

Secondly, I had a chance to see what it is like to work in an Israeli startup. I think that there is no better way to truly experience a country and its culture than through an every day work with people who live there. Our project turned out to be even more interesting and challenging than I expected and it was a great pleasure to work with the people at our host company.

Lastly, Israel Lab was a great opportunity to travel around Israel and learn about its culture. I have visited Israel before but this particular trip gave me much more context and understanding of factors that shaped Israeli mentality which are visible through everyday life. I feel under the charm of Tel Aviv, its boulevards and cozy coffee shops on every corner, and after spending there three weeks, I could definitely call it one of the favorite cities I’ve been to.

For anyone considering taking Israel Lab next term, definitely worth it! #mitisraellab
